I have a question and hoping that somebody have answer to that. I am in the process of asking recommendations from my former managers and have downloaded the recommendation form from business school web site. Now I read everyplace I look into that recommendations are good if these are well explained in the form of a story and with specific examples. So how do this thing work when space in the recommendation form is limited and it is in question and answer format.

Thanks !

From what I understand a lot of the LORs now a days are done/submitted electronically and therefore do not really have the space constraints - and if you/your recommender prefer to submit paper copies, the instructions usually say if they should use the space provided, or use additional paper, etc

Check out the advice page on preparing a package for your recommenders http://gmatclub.com/wiki/Recommendations

You will submit your recommenders email addresses, a link will be sent to them and they will fill out the form online. There is typically much more space available than on the pdf versions.

The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.

a couple other threads here may be useful, but the wiki is the best.
